A massive bridge that connects Central Yharnam to the main entrance of the Cathedral Ward. The bridge is littered with abandoned carriages that likely were supposed to be brought to the Cathedral Ward. However, the spreading scourge of beasts had infested Yharnam too deeply and as an act to safeguard the Healing Church's residence, the path to it from the Great Bridge was cut off to ensure the safety of the Ward.
- The Great Bridge lamp becomes available after defeating the Cleric Beast.
- Lore note: "When The Hunt began, the Healing Church left us, blocking the great bridge to Cathedral Ward, as Old Yharnam burned to the ground that moonlit night."
- The theory that the Great Bridge was locked from the Cathedral Ward to ensure the spreading of the Scourge makes sense as one can clearly see the unique Church Giant with a wrecking ball, guarding the entrance to the Cathedral Ward from the Bridge. Additionally, the room that is lead from the door in the Great Bridge is filled with incense urns to ward off the beasts, further supporting this theory.
